    So if I've understood correctly, a span marked as gd should be announced in English/Dutch/Russian or whatever the reader is using as "Scots Gaelic", and because it's most unlikely to have that language installed, it will then attempt to pronounce it as English/Dutch/Russian or whatever - yes?
    Yes.

    And I don't see how it could be wrong to add a lang attribute to an img tag. It says in the specs that it's a possibly attribute of the img element: http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/objects.html#h-13.2 (under "Attributes defined elsewhere).

    That's my Vulcan side again ; to me, an image doesn't have a language, so an <img> tag shouldn't have a lang attribute. (Although clearly there's a flaw in that logic, since I just described an image that does have a language...) Perhaps I should read the specs more.

    Me? No. Bears are more into hugging than violence. But nice to know somebody realises there's a difference.

    The ALT has a language so do some images in affect; if it displays important text a STOP sign or button for example or 'Caution: Poes will eat all unguarded chocolate' symbols, etc.

    Surely not. Pixar made some of my favourite films. Surely they wouldn't stoop so low. But then, it just goes to prove what I've always said: humans cause the violence and bears get all the bad press.
